Re: Mother or father?
Some of it has to do with the fact that my mom lives back home in Biffalo and my dad lives 5 minutes away from me.
My dad and I always had a great relationship when I was a kid (the whole daddy's little girl stuff). My parents divorced when I was 13. Things were great for the first 3 years but then my dad changed. The first 3 years were just me and my dad. My younger brother lived with my mom and my older brother is from my dad's first marriage so he came to visit every other weekend. My older brother then moved in. My older brother and I were always my dad's 'favorites' (not that he hated my younger brother, but my mom was always on my younger brother's side no matter what), but, anyway, I guess the divorce took it's toll on him and he got bitter as shit and didn't treat anyone nicely.
I moved out a few years later and my brother moved out about 3 or 4 years ago now. My dad changed and realized he acted like a dick....you certainly see things different when you are sitting alone in an empty house.
My dad is going to be 60 years old in a few months. I told him when I was a teenager that you just never know when something is going to happen so we should always be nice to each other. He finally took the advice and is making up for being a dick, lol. We hang out a lot.
